Thursday night, June 16, a lone gunman entered a potluck supper at St. Stephen’s Episcopal church in Vestavia Hills, Alabama. He killed two people and injured one. We extend our thoughts, our prayers and our hearts to the parish family and to the community of Vestavia Hills.

We have sent a letter with our condolences from the clergy, vestry and all of the CCCNOLA community to the people of Vestavia Hills. Pray for the St. Stephen’s community and for the people of Vestavia Hills.

“Almighty God, Father of mercies and giver of comfort:
Deal graciously, we pray thee, with all those who mourn, that
casting every care on thee, they may know the consolation of
thy love; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
